'donnell is my guest and prepared john mccain for hess debate with president obama four years ago and welcome to the show, good to have you here. [applause] >> what would you say mitt romney has to do more than anything else in order to go into that debate and come out the winner? >> at the top of the list has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he's got to be able to litigate the case, make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. because folks believe the economy's bad right now, but what they don't actually believe is that it's the president's fault. he is got to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him, that the president is the one to blame for the economy that we've got right now. >> mike: there's a little bit of delicacy going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he's showing disrespect to the president. if he doesn't go after him like you've said he'll look deferen
president obama has had four mock debates with senator john kerry who is of course no stranger to presidential debates. he also i can tell you had one more practice session last night after president obama had a campaign event in las vegas. now, as you pointed out, both sides are really trying to tamper down expectations. lavishing praise on the other candidate. that is because there's so much at stake in these debates really for most candidates. mitt romney tried to turn his campaign around, but president obama trying to hold on to the narrow lead you mentioned in your introduction. really trying to tamp down expectations. should also point out that president obama holding his debate camp right here in nevada which is a key swing state. one of the states he's hoping to win in november. he has a small lead in this state according to the abc wall street journal poll. he's trying to garner excitement by holding his debate camp here. he had a campaign event last night in las vegas. campaign officials tell me we shouldn't be surprised to see him shake a few hands over the next few
and capable. you're right. look, barack obama hasn't debated in four years. mitt romney has had a lot of debates in that time, but i do think it's worth noting, andrea, that all of mitt romney's debates have been against multiple people. there was never a time where he had a one on one debate against rick santorum or newt gingrich or rick perry. always debating four or five people who were really sort of aiming at him. he was the frontrunner throughout. barack obama had four debates against hillary clinton, one on one in the 2008 democratic primary, then three debates against john mccain. it's a different dynamic than to be the frontrunner where four or five people are aiming at you throughout a debate. >> here we are on the eve practically of the first debate and it's supposed to be an economic, domestic policy. >> right. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet a
that president obama ran four years ago when he ran on hope and change. now what he is running on is, this is the best we can do, america. we contrasted that, by the way, in our editorial this morning, with john f. kennedy in 1960 running against the eisenhower and nixon economy. at that time the economy was growing 2.5 to 3 percent and john f. kennedy famously said, we can do better. he minute by that, we should aspire to 4 percent or 5 percent economic growth. it is demoralizing when the president said we are only growing at 1.6 percent or 1.7 percent but this is the best we can do. >>neil: that is the worse john f. kennedy impression ever. i am kidding. >>guest: i am in chicago. i cannot do the boston accent. >>imus: we have mentioned this in the past. we had years of getting used to crappy numbers. when they are not as bad we do a jig. i can remember, as you can remember, and i don't think we are that sold, steve, that this would be laughable in any country, yet, maybe because we got used to so little we are grateful for so little. >>guest: there is some truth to that. people are
pac ad having women who voted for president obama in 2008. who over the course of four years were having a hard time in the economy. things are going so tough. they are disillusioned now going to vote for romney. they are both going after the target. it's all fair, right? >> andrea: listen to what they are saying about republicans, greg. maybe not so fair. eva longoria refers to anyone who criticizes obama as extremist. sheryl crow said the tea party is stupid and they don't know what they're angry at. my personal favorite, gloria steinham said of republican women, i mean, they think they bet dore what the powerful men tell them to do or they'll be in even more trouble. wow! >> bob: with all you respect, you and dana may not be at the table if it weren't for gloria steinham. she aided women going to college. it's not funny. she blazed a trail and deserves not the rest of the boombah whatever they're called but this woman is a historical figure in the women's group. >> andrea: the women's movement did a lot. she sits and insults women like dana. that is not a rallying cry for women
in the polls. although they came out yesterday saying that obama was only up by four. and had -- the rates were still very much up for grabs. romney people have to hope for that to be true. >> bret: karl, what about that? you know, even the p.p.p., a democratic leaning organization, suggesting some place like ohio is still up for grab. they had it at four. we talked a lot about these polls. and the concern about them. but your take on the battleground states and the state polls in particular. >> yeah. i think we got to approach them with a lot of skepticism. in ohio last week, we had cbs/"new york times" poll saying ten points for obama. and a columbus dispatch poll saying nine points. frank newport the head of the gallup organization had a blog posting that was revealing. he said you have to subject the state polls to the judgment of experience. he said for example, take ohio. the president won there by less than five points last time around. this time around, the poll that said he is winning by ten, does it make sense he would do twice as well, the margin is twice as big this time around than
week in 22 states. four states moved toward president obama and changed status. iowa, ohio, nevada, all battleground states moved from tossup to lean obama. montana moved from romney to lean romney. there were 11 other states then moved toward obama but had no change in status. there were five states that moved toward governor romney. but again had no change in status. >> joe, of those, what is most important? >> i mean the biggest thing is that shift in nevada and ohio. those two in particular. ohio, obviously, a big move. moving it to lean obama, it puts for the first time, i think since we started back in april, it puts obama with over the 270 electoral votes. we had that back then. it's coming clear today. that makes states like colorado even more important. and ohio still, it's got -- that is a problem for romney that is now starting to show in the polls. although they came out yesterday saying that obama was only up by four. and had -- the rates were still very much up for grabs. romney people have to hope for that to be true. >> bret: karl, what about that? you know, even the p.p
obama has a leg to stand on when it comes to entitlements. in the last four years he created a giant new entitlement that will put the onerous taxes on the middle class. i think he has to keep president obama on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his side. all he has to do is bring up the promises that president obama made. all the promises that he hasn't kept. boston you want to be president, you have to come up with details, too. >> what about skating through on promising to bring do
. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> eric: the obama administration coverup of an american debt. not a spy thriller or conspiracy movie. it's real. four americans are debt and it's all playing out in front of our eyes. fox news has confirmed within 24 hours of the assault in benghazi, u.s. intelligence knew it was preplanned and ladies and gentlemened it a terrorist attack, an al-qaeda terrorist attack. we have been saying this all along on "the five." thereon the obama administration trying -- listen to the obama administration thighing to spin the story -- trying to spin the story. they were aware of this by september 12. pay careful attention the dates. >> there is no justification, none at all for responding to this video with violence. >> we have no information to suggest that it was a pre pre-planned attack. it's not a reaction to the 9/11 anniversary that we know of. >> this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. >> eric: all right. here is president obama tuesday. >> there are no words to excuse the killing of innocence. there is no video this justifies an attack on an embassy. >> eric:
by four points. nationally, president obama has seen his lead rebound in recent days. in the gallup daily tracking point, he initially got a six-point bounce out of the democratic convention. that lead evaporated in the days that followed, but now as you can see, president obama has regained that six-point lead as if he just did the conventions all over again. with just 41 days left until the election, a snapshot of the race is very clear. in fact, we do these polls every day and it's almost starting to seem static at the presidential level. these swing state polls that we do every day, pretty much the map always look like this. president obama leading in all of the swing states or at least leading in almost all of them. a standard caveat, of course, is that anything could change. but the longer that it goes on without changing, as long as it starts to look like this is calcifying as the state of the race, especially now that more than half the country is already voting, half the swing states, already voting right now, while that is happening, if that part of the race is staying and this
to be employed in america and aren't employed in the four years that president obama has been president. they care, too. but we are supposed the believe from stephanie cutter and the campaign that forget the last four years, except when it comes to romney, remember when his taxes we don't know what he did in taxes. remember when 15 years ago he was at bain capital? >> andrea: greg, shouldn't men be upset? think about it. romney was hammered talk about the 47%. there is 49% of the country that is men. president obama isn't talking about them. >> greg: we are so marginalized. he never talks about my love life and how to subsidize my love life. that costs money, too. i have to go pay for that. that is not fair. that creates a lot of stress in my life. it causes me to drink. i often fall down. i'll hurt myself. i have goto go to the e.r. think about all the business of the e.r. because of sexual rejection. >> bob: you know something? nobody takes in account how much it costs, sexual stuff costs. but let me say this. if i were the romney campaign, this would worry me. you say how much troubl
. president obama could back the natural gas act. he hasn't. more lip service. promised to get us off middle east oil in ten years. four years later we're not even close. what are we doing about this? what is our energy energy policy? >> greg: windmills. solar panels. >> kimberly: solyndra. winner. >> bob: i haven't heard that in a long time. >> greg: we'll bring it back. solyndra shows that they invest in idiotsy. and they're destroying something that is important. eric, isn't it great when you see celebrities or left wing actors with egg on their face? they're wrong on this and they can't let go. >> eric: wrong on it. couple of numbers. we have spent $250 billion overseas because we are spending more money on gas. president obama came in. here is the way to drop gasoline. embrace fracking an natural gas. hundreds of billions of dollars of economic activity would stay in america. tens if not hundreds of billions of tax re-knew would stay here. if you want to talk about closing the debt, the deficit. allow fracking. frac away. by the way, there is nothing, never has been any proof of disease
at "real clear politics" average and that gives you a better sense which has obama up about four. even if you take claims at face value, jon, if he is up by eight or 11 points in any of these polls, even if you were to take out the possibility of oversampling, which i don't think is happening and i could explain that later, necessarily, the, he is still up by so much even if they were oversampling he is still ahead. he is still ahead by four or five points. it will not benefit the republicans to pretend this is just all the pollsters helping obama. jon: well, judy, the one of the points republicans like to make that there was a 7 percentage point advantage among democratic voters who turned out in 2008. so if the pollsters use that model, if they weight all of their polls by democrats plus seven, those were the numbers, four years ago, they're saying it is not accurate because you're not going to get the same kind of democratic enthusiasm and democratic turnout in 2012 that you had in 2008 when barack obama was a new, unknown and very exciting contender. >> well that is the key questio
is happening to america in the last four years? apparently not. according to stephanie cutter, president obama's deputy campaign manager. >> what you find most often with women, they are not concerned about what happened in the last four years. >> kimberly: that is not what ann romney has been hearing. she spoke to greta last night. >> i will tell you four years ago, women that would speak to me had a lot of different concerns on their mind. this time around, it is nearly universal. that they are talking about jobs, the economy, their future. they are talking about debt, entitlement and everything that is so critical we make sure that we get ahold on this economy. >> kimberly: eric, wouldn't it seem to make a lot of sense that women would support the candidacy of mitt romney because hof his experience with the economy, with jobs, with trying to put food on the table, money in the bank? >> eric: again, i don't understand why people are voting for barack obama. women, single women are voting for barack obama overwhelmingly. look what is going on. we talked about it how many times? 500,000 fewer
saying she was not doing this again. four years ago could michelle obama have pulled off ann's fire? >> i have a little bit of a soft spot for political wives. it's hard to watch someone white house who you're in love with be in a struggle that is a political campaign, so i feel her on that and i even like the fact that a political wife in this case is speaking her mind rather than being fully managed by the campaign at all times. think many of us are frustrated by how political wives sometimes get completely managed in campaigns. that said do i think michelle obama could have gotten away with these kinds of expressions of anger and irritation about how her husband was treated? no, i don't think so. i think we see clearly when michelle obama, before she was the first lady, did express even just her pride about it, that she was very much taken to task that and she was also considered maybe a liability going forward. doesn't certainly have the popularity factor that she has now back then. and the first lady, though, one thing she's done as first lady is championed for school nutrition as pa
're doing when they make these judgments every four years. i think that's why president obama's statement which he made a year into his presidency that he would rather be a rllygood one-term president than a mediocre two-term president doesn't really make sense because if you're shooting for history, you need to go through the american voter in order to get that good judgment from history. >> woodruff: you also say i think toward the end of the book you point out you think the president really does want to be elected to a second term. there's no question about that. >> i think we see that everyday, don't we? >> woodruff: the book really is a walk through history. we don't have time to go through all the categories but tell us what the most successful presidents have had in common? what do we see in them that we haven't seen in the other presidents? >> the presidents that i call leaders of destiny are the presidents who are consistently ranked highly by the historians and the historian polls the rating the president gain. number two they are two-term presidents succeeded by their own party
relations. welcome to you both. starting with you, richard haas, let's take an overview. is the obama foreign policy defendable four years later? >> for sure it's defendable. it's not to say it's flawless. but he can point to obviously the killing of osama bin laden. he can point to, among other things, the attempt to improve relations with china and russia. obviously he's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. the middle east, even though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against violence... violent extremism versus protecting free speech. why was so much devoted to that topic? >> g
first term in office. >> dana: four years later, president obama in front of the yellow curtain that gutfeld hates and failed to deliver on the promise. does he take responsibility for not getting it done? >> as president, i take responsibility for everything to some degree. when i came in office, i inherted the biggest deficit in our history. over the last four years the deficit has gone up. but 90% of that is consequence of two wars that weren't paid for. prescription drug plan that wasn't paid for. worst economic disaster since depression. >> dana: he got four pinocchios. >> greg: nobody is buying this. this is presidential equivalent of the dog ate my homework or the president ate my dog who ate my homework. let it go. it's over. both parties are to blame about spending. but he tied a rocket to it. you know? that is a fat guy tweaking. >> do we even know what kind of dog? >> dana: i don't really -- >> eric: talk walking down the street -- >> greg: who speaks for eaten dog. >> bob: good example of -- do go ahead. >> eric: to give you an example. okay. so -- [over talking ] un
campaign. and obama has not debated since four years ago. dana, what do you think? >> dana: except for "the view." >> bob: what do you think of the expectations? dais when president obama says that, it's not credible. they don't believe that. they think so highly of themselves and their campaign, when he says that, you know he is setting it up so the headline the next day will be despite expectation of him not doing well, president obama shined. that's what you will read. >> greg: surprisingly good point. gamesmanship. obama doesn't believe there is anything on earth anyone can do better than him. false modesty that is comically nauseating after a while. no, there is nothing that he thinks romney can do better than him. >> eric: a good reason for that. everyone after the last four years ago said what a great speaker he is! he is one of the best political speakers over the walk the earth. remember that? then no, i'm not that good. >> bob: do you think you have chance of setting expectation lower for himself? >> andrea: does he? >> bob: yeah. >> andrea: he wants them be as low as possible. >>
better. >> do we want four more years where every single year the take home pay goes down? >> no! >> do we want four more years of trillion-dollar defici? >> no. >> so, ben,itt romney has ra $il tredent obama's $2.8 million. the super pacs as inow you're aware has fire power to release. when that happens in conjunction with the debates, do u frn ev ter rhere? >> well, mitt romney has to pre sent a plan. that's what these advertisements won't be able to do. the burden is on him to explain why returning to the se economic policies that caused the crisis in the first place, more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, stripping it over wall st sehow unleash job creation when it hasn't in the past. ultimately they here not building on the ground. we've been on the ground for the past four years. our organizers and supporters talking to their neighbors and communies. they may be able to build a 72-hour tnkey operationut wavhe same roots in the community that we've been building over the past four years. that will be stronger than any negative advertisement on the air for special interes
, president obama's lead there is four points, 49% to 45%. ppp tends to lean democratic, but the new "columbus dispatch" poll shows the president with a lead more than twice as big. he's up nine in the newspaper poll. 51%/42%. in iowa, a new "des moines register" poll has the president up 49%/45%. that's been a tricky state, iowa. we'll be right back. d every day, we've worked hard to keep it.y, bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy compa
the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden

"wall street journal" poll, sorry, today's "wall street journal" poll shows him six points do

obama. how is the ground game there this time around compared with what we saw four years ago? >> it's very strong. and remember, the differences. frankly, they've had four years through the democratic party and organizing for america on the ground, sort of continuing to cultivate those relationships. one of the things we haven't really talked that much about yet in the context of the broader election is voter registration. and democrats have actually, the obama campaign has very much focused on voter registration which will i think ultimately help in their early voting efforts. you get somebody to register early, vote early, and get them to bring ten friends and bring them to the polls. >> what does the romney campaign have to do to encourage republican turnout? is there the enthusiasm for the base this time around? >> the polls are showing there is a pretty strong enthusiasm among the base. what most of the polls i've seen show both the democratic base and the republican base have very enthusiastic. i think for those undecided voters who are the big factor, these debates which are
